his campaign is taking on water and our campaign is full speed ahead. >> the romney campaign, though, is distancing itself today from republican senate candidate in indiana, richard mourdock who romney only this week endorsed in a tv ad, the indiana republican set off a firestorm in a debate last night with these comments about rape and abortion. >> i struggled with it myself for a long time but i came to realize life is that gift from god and i think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that god intended to happen. >> and they can just get along. monday's boca debate, "daily show" style. >> i congratulate him on taking out osama bin laden. drones are being used in drone strikes and i support that entirely. and feel the president was right. i want to underscore the same point the president made. i felt the same as the president did. i supported his action there. absolutely the right thing to do to have crippling sanctions. >> i think romney's leaning obama. >> good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in philadelphia today. the campaign carousel is

after a debate here that saw president obama on offense attacking mitt romney's view of the world as romney played it safe, agreeing with many of the president's positions all night. good morning, i'm willie geist. this is another special edition of rockerfeller. we are set up again at rack's downtown eatery in boca raton. last night the american public got its last side by side-view of the candidates before election day, two weeks from today. polls showing this race as tight as it can be. the president and governor romney sought to leave an impression on the tens of millions of americans watching at home before they head to the voting booths. let's go through what we saw in that debate hall last night at lynn university. the foreign policy issue many predicted would dominate the high, the attack in bengahzi essentially swept under the rug. out of the gate, the candidates focusing on a wide range of issues from iran to afghanistan and for a while even the auto bailout. less than five minutes into the debate, romney mentioned the death of osama bin laden. president obama came out as t

hanoi. romney has never served his country. the only prisoner he's been captive of are the right wing haters that are smelling up the republican campaign. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "politicsnation" with al sharpton starts right now. >> thanks, chris, and thanks to you for tuning in. 13 days until election day. here's where the race stands. the "new york times" 538 blog shows president obama leading the national poll average with 50% of the popular vote. mitt romney has 48.9%. and according to 538, if the election were held today, the president would win re-election well 288 electoral votes. romney would get 250. it takes 270 votes to win the white house. a brand new ohio poll gives the president a five-point lead in that crucial state propelled by a two to one average in early voting. as of tonight, 6.5 million people have already voted in this election. with over a million voting in just the last 24 hours. we'll have much more on the early vote later on in this show. but we start with tonight's lead. hiding in plain sight. we know the republican party h

. governor romney has a packed campaign schedule holding an event in ohio and stumping in iowa and wisconsin later today. meanwhile, president obama is in a holding pattern, kangs ling events in ohio and florida to return to washington and monitor the storm. the white house canceled the president's trip to wisconsin scheduled for tomorrow. but while voters won't see him on the trail they will see him in the role of commander in chief including later this hour when he delivers a statement on the hurricane from the white house. and perhaps voters will be wondering how a president romney might handle the very same situation. one indication comes from a primary debate in june of last year, when governor romney made the case for shutting down fema and passing the responsibility on to the states. >> fema is about to run out of money and some people say do it on a case-by-case basis and some who say maybe we're learning a lesson here the states should take on more of this role. >> absolutely. every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to

stuff that makes the future more dangerous. romney, well, clearly he's in debt to the hawks, the neoconservatives who write the stuff we heard last night, this talk of accusing the president of iran of genocide for the things he said about israel. it's purely political stuff. that and what he said about russia being our number one enemy in the world today. all this old cold war stuff. what's beneath it? who knows. what we do know is he feels the need to wear that neocon suit. will he rip it off if elected? why would anyone think that? he spoke about wanting a peaceful planet. talk about learning a dance for the occasion. john heilemann and ron reagan join us. mitt has a tendency to assume whatever political profile he thought would best help him win. in 2007 facing a relatively moderate john mccain and rudy giuliani, he tacked to the hard right. everything could always be tweaked, reshaped, fixed, addressed said one former aide describing his outlook. saying it was foreign to him on policy issues that core principles mattered, that somebody would go back and say, well, three year
